Bernie is now using Trump's arguments ...

Apparently, he respects the art of debating like a five-year-old ...

“That was what was thrown at me,” he said, noting Clinton's strategy has been described as “disqualify him, defeat him and then unify the party later.”

..........

Sanders said Clinton started the fight over being qualified for the Oval Office and that he was responding in kind. He also blamed the media, which he accused of being uninterested in covering his calls to help the middle class.

8. I understand that he is now developing a new line of argument ...

... and will soon be attacking with the brilliant and withering "I know you are but what am I" debate stratagem.

I'm Democrat like that.

30. BS supporters demonize Clinton for bringing up legitimate questions

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/04/06/clinton-says-sanderss-plans-unrealistic-or-nonexistent-as-tame-democratic-primary-gets-testy/


"We both want to make our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top," Clinton told a union audience here. "But Senator Sanders and I have some real differences about how we would go about achieving our goals as president.

[font size="3"]
"And like a lot of people, I am concerned that some of his ideas just won't work,

.... because the numbers don’t add up.

.... Others won’t even pass Congress,

---- or they rely on Republican governors suddenly having a conversion experience and becoming progressives," she asserted.

...... "In a number of important areas, he doesn’t have a plan at all."[/font]


[font size="+1"]
Demonizing her for raising very valid questions is typical of Sanders supporters (and Repugnants): When you don't have a good answer - Demonize.[/font]

Thank you!

Hillary lies about emails and subpoenas...

So not a lot of moral high ground, eh?

House Republicans Release The Subpoena Hillary Clinton Said She Never Received For Her Emails, The Huffington Post, July 8, 2015 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/07/08/hillary-clinton-emails-_n_7756106.html

WASHINGTON — One day after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she “never had a subpoena” for the emails she sent while secretary of state, House Republicans on Wednesday released a document appearing to contradict her — namely, the subpoena they’d served Clinton earlier this year.

During an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday, Clinton said that other secretaries of state had done the same thing as her in the past. Keilar replied, “They used a personal server, and while facing a subpoena, deleted emails from them?"

“You know, you’re starting with so many assumptions,” Clinton responded. “I’ve never had a subpoena, there’s nothing — again, let’s take a deep breath here.”

(snip)

When Clinton on Tuesday said she’d “never had a subpoena,” that appears to be contradicted by the subpoena House Republicans issued her in March. But it depends on what the meaning of the word “had” is. A Clinton campaign spokesperson told The Huffington Post that she had already destroyed the emails in question before the subpoena was received. Clinton turned over some emails to the State Department in late 2014 and then wiped her personal server clean — so by the time the subpoena arrived in March, there was nothing for it to act on.


And then to see an actual copy of the subpoena (it even has the heading "SUBPOENA" in all caps) she was served on March 4, 2015 go here -

http://benghazi.house.gov/sites/republicans.benghazi.house.gov/files/Kendall.Clinton%20Subpoena%20-%202015.03.04.pdf

Keep in mind ALL the government records including the ones she TRIED TO HAVE DELETED have since been retrieved by the FBI.

Unbeknownst to Clinton, IT firm had emails stored on cloud; now in FBI’s hands, McClatchy DC, October 3, 2015 http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article37968711.html

WASHINGTON A Connecticut company, which backed up Hillary Clinton‘s emails at the request of a Colorado firm, apparently surprised her aides by storing the emails on a “cloud” storage system designed to optimize data recovery.

The firm, Datto Inc., said Wednesday that it turned over the contents of its storage to the FBI on Tuesday.

A Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also has asked the firm to provide the committee copies of any data from Clinton’s account still in its possession.


So it will be very interesting to see if she "lied" about them all having to do with yog and her daughter's wedding - except we already know some of them were "work related" because other people (including Sidney Blumenthal) already turned them in.

16. Thank you, I will ...

... and you do the same.

It's a beautiful world.

I need to stop at the market on the way home and pick up some sesame oil - it seems like a chicken stir fry kind of day.

Then, I get to go watch my son play high school baseball against their rival school.

He'll be on the mound.

Life is good, and I awaken each morning grateful that I'm not a Republican.

20. My nephew plays baseball too, he's 9.

First year with the big kids and he plays third base; quite a hitter too. I'd go to his games if I could but he's in PA and I'm in TX.

Life IS good, and it's the only one we have. Be grateful for EVERYTHING.

It's tactical maneuverings and apparently Weavers doesn't have the brains to figure it out and guide Bernie away fro the precipice....instead he keeps shoving Bernie closer to the edge.
